Very good read although a little out of dateThe world leaders referenced in this book are very dated and conseuently sets a world stage about 20 30 years ago Aside from that distraction Torpedo is still a thought provoking and well written work of military fiction I will include this author in future book searches

free read Torpedo author Harry Homewood 106 Harry Homewood · 6 download The USS Sharkfin was twelve hours out of the Strait of Gibraltar on course 278 degrees true destination New London The men on sonar watch weren’t listening for the approach of an enemy They were primarily concerned with the sonar search patterns that were being beamed out ahead and to each side of the submarine’s bow There was a chance that the sonar operators might have heard the whining high pitched noise of a torpedo racing up the submarine’s wake but it was a remote chance The Sharkfin’s big seven bladed propeller was turning fast enough to drive the huge submarine at a steady twenty knots making just enough noise to almost muffle any sound that came from directly astern The torpedo zeroed in on the spinning propel. Unfortunately despite the author s previous two books being pretty good this third book is another book where I found the main premise to be completely unbelievable That really made the whole story not work for me so I didn t enjoy this book The writing was OK but the characters weren t particularly well drawn so sometimes I had a difficult time trying to keep track of who was who I wouldn t really recommend this book even to someone who is interested in submarines there are much better books out there
